A LAWYER IS NOT AN EXPENSE IN A DIVORCE CASE – THEY ARE AN INVESTMENT!

Divorce can be an extremely emotional time for all those involved causing decisions to be made in the heat of the moment, many times causing more harm than good.  This is the primary reason hiring an attorney is considered an investment, not an expense.

Did you know that Florida is a No-Fault divorce state? This means that there is no necessity to show any wrongdoing on the part of either spouse, but one must show that the marriage is “Irretrievably Broken” meaning that there is no realistic possibility for the marriage to be successful if continued.

When there are children involved in a divorce, a parent’s first priority should be to make the transition as smooth as possible for the children, and the court looks to ensure that any decisions as to custody or visitation are in the best interests of the child. In Florida, Child Support is determined by the income of each parent and is based on Statutory Guidelines.

Often following a divorce, events may happen which result in changed circumstances, such as unanticipated medical costs, loss or gain of income, relocation as well as other circumstances. Having an attorney on hand to handle any modifications can be of value to you.

Finally, if you are the primary custodial parent and you are not receiving your child support payments, they are less than what is owed, or you receive them sporadically, you might want to hire an attorney to assist you in having your child support order enforced or the non-paying party might be held in contempt of the court.
